Packaging is the jam
So I was approached not too long ago by some good friends.. Jeremiah, specifically. Basically it went down, “Dudes. A friend is making some legit shit. Wristgear. Real deal. Check it.” So that’s not verbatim whatsoever, but that’s kind of how I remember it. At any rate, I was initially hesitant. “Ah, I got a watch and a friendship bracelet my lady any I bought for each other in San Diego. I don’t need more on my wrist.” Wrong sauce.
Form Function Form has it on lock. Not just for looks, either. And that’s why I got so into FFF’s offerings. Anyone cane make some leather goods. But what set is apart? In this case, function. The braiding on the lure bracelet can easily hold a few lures, should fishing be your fancy. Plus, walking around with an old lure as the focal point, hook included, it’s something new. And I am a fan.
The Lure. (Original momentum fans might gets that....)
I was swung a lure wristwrap and a mini multi-tool carrier complete with lighter. Both should come in handy when camping. Especially the multi-tool holder. Light for fires and smokes and mallows (if fire fails) and whatever else I want to burn.
lighter. tool. tool. lighter. leather.

$25 for a small leather wallet with my initials from one of the most beautiful cities in the world? Deal. I found Leathermix on Etsy a few weeks back and wanted to wait until i got my purchase to say anything. I’m a fan. Soft leather, good coloring, affordable, and, what I deem important, good customer service.
Zafer, chief proprietor of Leathermix was quick to say thanks for the purchase and offer any and all help should any issues arise. Other items in the collection:

When I was a lad, methinks I was sort of a prick at times. I would get upset when my folks refused to buy me the “Air” versions of Nikes. In turn, I’d get hassled on the schoolyard for having the “cheap” variety of the Jordan’s. Looking back, my parents made the right choice. My feet grew fast and there was no point in shelling out the bigger bucks for kicks I’d soon grow out of. But I would razz the kids who wore Keds, thinking they were even cheaper than me. Ass. I mean, they weren’t sportin the Royal Masters ($75) or anything, but really, a shoe is just a shoe. It’s not a reflection of character. Unless you’re deadset on always wearing only the very limited editions of everything. Then it’s sorta like, “Dude. Really? Might wanna think about maybe getting a life…”
Remember when it was such “news” that Harrison Ford was dating and then married Calista Flockhart and got his ear pierced? Well, Calista’s now 44 and I think Mr. Ford’s since ditched the ear accessory so it doesn’t seem like it was worth the media coverage now does it? At the time though, man. That was crazy…Speaking of which, my buddy, Judd, named his cat Indiana Jones. He should get the Indiana Leather Adventure Duffel ($346) to carry the lil guy around in. THat’d be something. That’s news. Continue reading
I was down at the Paris Wine Bar last night in preparation to ride Loops with Jeremy. The weather turned an unfortunate temperature of “cold,” promting Jeremy to have to pop across the street and pick up a hoodie from Emage. While we were there, I noticed they had Nixon’s 51-30 ($320- $370). The thing is boss as heck. It’s huge too, so I hope you have a strong forearm. From all my years of typing, I know I’d be able to keep the wrist up while donning this beast. More images after this. Continue reading
Each one of Kenton Sorenson’s leather bags is hand-sewn, cut, dyed, tanned, and finished with the modern pavement cowboy in mind. What’s a modern pavement cowboy? Buy one of these Wisconsin Leathers ($599) from Context and figure it out for yourself.
